I absolutely adore drawing with ink. I did this with a dip pen and a trusty bottle of India Ink. Sometimes a little messy, but I love the effect.

Irish Elk are pretty nifty, their antlers grew to over 3 meters across!

Very well done, especially the shading. What weight paper do you use? I used to love working with a Rapidograph pen.

Thanks! I'm using 11"x14" sheets of 100lb bristol. Its very nice to work with, pretty smooth but still has a bit of texture.

What is the skull underneath it supposed to be?
Although its not to scale to the Irish elk, its just your typical North American elk.

I really love how you rendered the fur.  Wink

Thanks! I love doing fur. It can be tricky though, especially with pen. I'm definitely still learning Smiley

Another amazing drawing!

Thanks! Ink is just so awesome, and so convenient. <3

Beautiful work, stunning, you must be so patient !
Lets just say that I have a bit of an obsession with detail, haha!

This piece is fabulous!  I saw an Irish elk rack at Bunratty castle a few years ago and it was HUGE!
